Tomcn MOUNT ROYvl PSALM 78 Give ear, o my people, to my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth. I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old: Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us. We will not hide them from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done. For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children: That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children: That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments: And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation that set not their heart aright and whose spirit was not stedfast with God.

GARDEN FOREWORD I am glad to have this opportunity of exte nding appreciation and good wishes to the Varshicom staff and the entire student body. I hope the staff may find satisfaction with this yearbook and gain some recompense for the large amount of time they have spent in producing such a good publication. We owe the editor and all this staff a debt of gratitude for the work they have so freely given in making possible this souvenir of our life in the College during 1957-58. It is one that in later years will recall many happy memories and remind us of our pleasant associations at the College. Graduation from Mount Royal College is one step in the process of your formal education. We hope that many of the graduates will go on to higher graduations in the universities of our country. There is a great need today for university-trained people to give leadership in this epoch-making period. Some of you will leave the College halls to take your places in the world of business and industry. I hope you will be successful in finding fields of endeavor in which you may make a good contribution to society and develop your own personalities. There are still others who will probably return to the College in the fall to continue with still further training. To one and all, I express my deep appreciation for your friendship and co-operation, and trust that you will make a good contribution towards the better world that is so greatly needed and for which the heart of mankind is yearning. You who are young, it is you, it is you Who must make the dreams of the world come true. You who are young have a world to build. The future will be what you have willed. Learn and practice, plan and do; Hold to a vision and shape it true, And you will find in time that a dream or two Because of you, because of you, Shall out of the mist and the dark come true. Heed what you build with hand and tongue, You who are young, you who are young. John H. Garden Principal DEAN ' S MESSAGE.. Last December the complacency of the Western World was rudely disturbed with the announcement that Soviet Russia had been successful in launching the first man made sattelite into outer-space. This event was a severe blow to Western pride which had never before doubted the superiority of its science and scientists over those of other countries. Immediately a search was started to find out where the blame for this incredible loss of face could be placed. It was to be expected that the present system of education would bear the brunt of the criticism. Since that time educational systems have been, and are being investigated and examined by panels, committees and commissions of all shapes, sizes and complexions. Out of all the discussions has come a decision that there must be a general raising of standards and tightening of requirements. With this movement no one would wish to disagree. At the same time it is very necessary that the present hysteria should not overwhelm us and cause us to imagine quite erroneously that a raising of standards will solve the problems that caused all the furore. A conference of scientists and educators was held recently at Yale University, and Senator William Benton of the United States made this statem ent: “No matter what investment we allocate to schooling we cannot guarantee to deliver Einsteins nor Fermis nor Van Neumanns. But if we make the opportunity for learning as freely available to talent and ability as the water we drink, we return to an historic American assumption that our natural resources reside in the capacity and the aspirations of the coming generations.” In other words out of all the talk and controversy comes the fundamental fact that the future of Canada, and of any country, depends on the quality, character and the ability of her young people. This, too, is the basic philosophy of Mount Royal College. The task of the College is so to develop the personalities, characters and abilities of her students that they may be able to take their places as citizens who will make valuable contri¬ butions to all areas of our common life. This is a huge job and beset with many difficulties and pitfalls. Yet we believe that our graduates of 1958 have a sound basis on which to build many years of service to this day and generation. W. J. COLLETT. Dean. HISTORY Our great institutions of learning have all had modest beginnings. They are the result of a lot of vision, thoughtfulness, generosity and self sacri¬ fice on the part of some Canada’s greatest citizens, many of whom have long since departed this life. Since its founding in 1910 Mount Royal College has been guided by men who have carried on the noble traditions which is its inheritance. Through¬ out its years of service its leaders have been men of Christian character and clear vision; our Board of Governors have given the College stability and vigorous leadership; our distinguished faculty has been devoted to the College. It would be impossible here to mention them all. But in paying tribute to them it seems fitting and proper to pay a special tribute to the memory of Dr. George W. Kerby, a distinguished citizen of our country, and one whose great vision and character has played a noble part in moulding the spirit of this fine institution. Mount Royal College was founded in 1910 when a Provincial Charter for a non-profit institu¬ tion was obtained on December 16 th. The College was given power and legal authority to establish, keep and maintain and conduct in or near the city of Calgary an institution of learning for the educa¬ tion and instruction of youths of both sexes or of either sex in the elementary and secondary branches of knowledge and for education and instruction in music, art, speech, drama, journalism, com¬ mercial and business courses, technical and domes¬ tic arts, and do all such acts and matters and things as are incidental or conducive to the attainment of the said objects. The first building erected had residential ac¬ commodation for one hundred students with ade¬ quate kitchens, dining halls, etc. and also contained class rooms to accommodate abut two hundred stu¬ dents. The College opened on September 8, 1911. In 1931 the academic work of the College was greatly enhanced when affiliation standing with the University of Alberta was granted and the col¬ lege began offering the first two years of university training in the Faculty of Arts and Science. The important forward step was authorized by the Pro¬ vincial Government when the charter was amended giving to the institution the status of a Junior Col¬ lege with power to offer the first two years of university courses. This involved the enlargement of the college buildings, the cancellation of all elementary work and the provision of an adequate library. A substantial donation was made then by the Carnegie Foundation of New York and many generous contributions were made by citizens of the area. In 1944 the Department of Engineering was established, for two years’ training in engineering, with an Associate in Engineering Diploma provid¬ ing the opportunity for transfer to a university to proceed toward a graduate degree. This depart¬ ment has been a great boon to young people of the community especially at a time that demands the services of more and more engineers. In 1950 The Kerby Memorial Building and the Stanley Gymnasium were created by funds contributed by generous public minded people of the area and many substantial contributions from friends of Dr. Kerby all over Canada and the U.S.A. DEDICATION Mount Royal College dedicates the 1958 Varshicom to Mrs. J. S. Bach, with deep apprecia¬ tion for her untiring, and faithful service to the College. We hope that she will accept this tribute from the Administration, Faculty, and Student Body of Mount Royal College. THE MATRON The duties of Matron are of a very complex nature. It is difficult to please all in my care, but this difficulty is eased by the co-operation of those concerned with the College. In any job or position any of you may hold in life, your success will be determined not alone by your academic qualifications, but receive from and give to your co-workers. May the College motto — Quam bene, non quantum — “quality not quantity,” apply to your work and activities throughout your life. I wish you well. Louise M. Hawke. W. G. M. Rae Businness Mgr.

Whether you are graduating this year or not. the critical eye of industry and business will be focused on you as a future staff member prospect. It is perhaps important, therefore, that you ask whether you have equipped yourself to make your first step into the competive world. Throughout your school years you have developed an understanding of many academic subjects. Your graduation certificate is testimony in itself of this achieve¬ ment. Business and industry, of course, look beyond your diploma to determine if you possess many other important fundamental qualities. The most important of these will be your ability to assume responsibility, for management today requires young men and women, as never before, to give leadership in our modern day competitive economy. Your willingness to accept responsibility will be tested on many occasions. The degree of your future success will also be measured by this essential characteristic. A second important quality will be evaluated by your desire to further qualify yourself, regardless of whatever occupation you follow. The individual who stands still and is prepared just to exist from day to day without improving his or her knowledge of business or profession, immediately places limitations on their careers. Our country presents the most challenging opportunities of any nation in the world, for young men and women. Those who succeed are those who are prepared to set an objective — then apply themselves toward achieving it. I can remember once seeing a sign on a Northern Alberta road ,which read “Be careful which rut you choose, for you may be in it for the next fifty miles.” I would say to you young men and women — “Be careful of the life you chose, for it is yours to live for the next fifty years or more.” Choose to live a life without depth, breadth, and height, and it will simply be a blind experience. But make those decisions daily that give meaning and direction and you will find it a great adventure. It is all up to you. Good Luck. Arthur R. Smith M. P.

COLLEGE COUNCIL As we are all aware this year has marked the initial exhibition of the College’s faith and confi¬ dence in the University Department. By granting us our first separate Students Council, they have bestowed upon us a great honour. For not only does it enable the Varsity students to govern and handle their own affairs, but it also gives us a great pride in knowing that we are all united, sharing mutual interests ,and feelings. During the initial year no one will disagree that M.R.C. hasn’t really come to life. For within the limited confines of our school ,we could literally feel the inter-faculty rivalry, and also an unbeliev¬ ab le sense of comradeship. Mount Royal was beginning to become a University — we all knew it and we all took pride in it. It is my sincere hope that the years to come will bring us back to Mount Royal at some time, to reunite, and share once again the warm friend¬ ships ,and reminiscences about the wonderful times we had during our fleeting years at the College. On behalf of the students Union I wish you all the sucess possible in the future. Claude Halpin. BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION GRADUATES Bob Aylesworth Bowness Our free-lance traveller.

More than this, however, it is a milestone in the lives of each of us, a climax to months of concentrated effort. I have witnessed Mount Royal’s expansion for five years, and this growth has reached a high peak tonight at this the first separate Junior College Graduation. I am deeply honoured to have been chosen as Vale¬ dictorian for this memorable occasion. Because this may be our final meeting to¬ gether it might be well to look over our months at Mount Royal, and draw from that experience some conclusion as to what the future holds for us. When we entered this college, we were all somewhat dubious about our immediate prospects as students. After writing several exams, we gain¬ ed confidence in ourselves and a realization that there is a reward for effort, and that only real effort produces a genuine reward. Gerald Horton Bath of Stetson University says: “Education that does not engender a sense of humility in the stu¬ dent, that does not make him appallingly aware of how much there is to know that he does not know, is not true education. It is simply mental calisthenics. From education students should acquire enough knowledge so that they need not look up at others with envy, enough wisdom so that they will not look down on others with disdain.” We have learned this as we have learned many other things at Mount Royal College. We have learned loyalty and teamwork through such competitive endeavours as the Blood Donors Clinic and inter-faculty athletic events. We have learned to understand the word “sportsmanship,” and to get along better, one with the other. Such rewards have overridden immediate material de¬ sires in a world where such temptations are ever¬ present. A broader outlook on many phases of life has been opened to us through our various lectures; the concentration so necessary to our success here will contribute immeasurably to our further success in the world. Our final marks will serve as a lasting reminder of the rewards possible through initia¬ tive, persistence, and concentration. All of this very naturally turns our thoughts to those who have played such an important part in our individual successes. I refer of course to our teachers. How much it has meant to most of us, confused and bewildered as we have been at times, to know that in the members of our faculty we would always find interested listeners and wise counselors. What success we may achieve, whatever ac¬ complishments may become ours they too shall participate, they too, will experience that thrill which comes from “something accomplished,” and we shall gladly share our triumphs with them. And now a word as to the future. We must keep our goal in mind and strive to attain it. We must face the future lies in a continuation of our formal education, in the business world, we must all endeavour to function as efficient secre¬ taries, wise executives, and capable engineers. This is our obligation to our country. Let us direct ourselves toward its fulfillment. Each of us will encounter problems that must be solved individually. Whatever difficulties may lie ahead, whatever tasks may confront us, the knowledge and the courage and the skill which have become ours in these past months will stand us in good stead. As the years go by, time may weaken our memories of each other and distance may sepa¬ rate us. Neither time nor distance however will dim our fond memories of a faculty whose in¬ spiration we shall never forget, nor of an alma mater toward which our loyalty will never waver. The thoughts we experience at this moment are best summarized in this quotation: “Our world is a college, events are teachers, happiness is the graduating point, and character is the diploma God gives man.” With such resources as these, we face the future undaunted.

OLDFIELD, B.A. It has been an interesting year — an unforgettable chapter in Life’s Book of Adventures. Residence life provides an experience in co-operative living where the guiding principle must be the greatest good to the greatest number, I believe that most of our residence girls have grown in their ability to get along with others — to share the responsibilities, the fun, and sometimes, even each other’s clothes. In spite of the perennial complaints about rules, food, phones, and Deans, I am confident that, in years to come, your sojourn in Mount Royal College Girls’ Dorm will have a cherished place in your memories. Good Luck to all of you. MESSAGE FROM THE DEAN OF MEN — E. R. HAWKE. You the students of Mount Royal College are the grand-children of our Alberta pioneers. It is only some 84 years since prairie trails were blazed, and this land opened to people of all races and creeds by the Royal North West Mounted Police, and such hardy people as the McKinnon’s Thomas’, Cross’, Greer’s, Copithorne’s, Sibbald’s, Collicutt’s, MacDonald’s, and many other pioneering families. The scions of these original Albertans, have made Mount Royal College. The classical phrase for passing time is Tempus Fugit. Make the most of your time, and the many opportunities available in this fine land, entrusted to you by the pioneers of Alberta.

Garden, Principal of the College. The Conservatory building itself has undergone ISextensive renovation, with the addition of many new studios, and the Con¬ servatory is now completely separated from the residences, which makes for a quieter, more dignified atmosphere conducive to better work on the part of both teachers and pupils. A highlight of the Conservatory work during this past year was the introduction of our own new printed examination syllabus. Students are prepared for the examinations of the Mount Royal College Conservatory, the Royal Conservatory of Music of Toronto, the Western Board of Music, and Trinity College of Music, London, England. The Mount Royal examinations in February were conducted by Mrs. Dorothy Langmo of Ednonton, and the June examinations by Mr. Burton Kurth of Vancouver. Another highlight this year has been the organization of a Mount Royal Conservatory Parents’ Auxiliary, similar in aims and objects to the Home and School or Parent-Teacher organizations in the schools. Several meetings were held during the year, and the organization . L A sponsored two Sunday afternoon recitals, one a faculty recital and the other a senior students recital. Refresh- A ments were served following the programs. Main Mi amt lb. alI Indents entered in both the chestra, under the very capable direction of Mr. John S. Bach, have achieved a high standard. The orchestras have presented two public orchestral concerts, one in the fall and one in the spring. A feature of great benefit to the students of the Conservatory is the presentation of frequent recitals that are given during the year in the College Auditorium. These recitals are a real advantage to the student, who has the opportunity of hearing and becoming acquainted with many musical works, as well as the important experi¬ ence of performing himself. Students from all grades are permitted to perform at student recitals. This gives an incentive to greater effort on the part of the student, and also affords an opportunity of developing self-con¬ fidence. Members of the faculty have given a series of three concerts during the season. The first was given on November 27th, by Mr. Henry Waack, A. Mus.(U.A.), A.R.C.T., pianist, and Miss Donna Gendall, soprano. The second was on February 23rd, by Mr. Andrew Sawatzky, A.T.C.L., L.T.C.L., baritone, and Miss Joyce Orr, teacher of Speech Arts. The third, a duo-piano recital, by Mr. Peter Hodgson, A.R.C.A., A.R.C.M., L.R.A.M., and Miss Mary Thatcher, A.R.C.M., L.R.A.M., A.B.S.M., was presented on May 11th. These faculty recitals have been an important contribution to the musical life of the city. Lee M. Walters MOUNT ROYAL COLLEGE JUNIOR ORCHESTRA John S. Bach, L.R.A.M., A.R.C.M., A.R.A.M.

HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS UNION EXECUTIVE: Lew Menegozzo__ Bill Fair_ Donna Pashak _ Sharon Gail Gordon Folh_ Mike Burns_ Gary Gast_1_ - President — V ice-President - Secretaries - T reasurer Athletic Director —Social Director ROOM REPRESENTATIVES: Phil Allen Peter Aunger David Cairns Dave Damen Rosalyn Doze Betty Farrell Wayne Harvey Elaine Hutson Richard Larson Brian Mercer Larry Bennion Don McClaskey Sloane Smith MESSAGE FROM THE UNION PRESIDENT With the end of another school term, we, the graduating class, carry with us academic achievement and the experience derived from participating in extra-curricular activities. In participating in school activities, whether our efforts be directed in athletic, dramatic, musical, or social fields, we learn to live and work together a quality which the world surely needs today. In all phases of our school life, we should measure our success in accordance with the efforts put forth to live up to our school motto — “Quam bene non Quantum”. Our high school education is of infinite value to all of us. It will prepare us and develop in us the necessary knowledge, experience, and ability to deal with problems. This past year has been a success in many ways. The dances have been very well attended. In the sports world the Girls’ Volleyball Team, the Boys’ Basketball and Hockey Team won league championships. The School may be proud of the sense of fair play and sportsmanship which has been developed. You the students, are to be congratulated on the splendid way you have maintained a fine school spirit, shown especially in our social and athletic life. — Lou Menegozzo THE VICE-PRESIDENT OF THE STUDENTS UNION On behalf of the Students’ Union I extend special thanks to Dr. Garden, Dean Collet, Mr. Brown, and Mr. Hawke whose guidance and tactful advice has been invaluable. I also appreciate the interest and co-operation of the other members of the faculty and staff. To the new Students’ Union T extend my best wishes for the coming year. If they are given the same enthusiastic support that has been given us, a successful year is inevitable. Once again, thanks and the best of luck in the coming years. — Bill Fair A MESSAGE TO THE L.D.S. STUDENTS OF MOUNT ROYAL COLLEGE Let us here borrow some thoughts and statements which may encourage us to greater heights and better living. Confucius said: “All are equally men, but some are great men and some are little men. How is this? Those who follow the part of themselves which is great are great men and those who follow the part of themselves which is little are little men.” Experience should teach us that normal life includes for all men some successes and some failures. As one matures he should accept both with composure, realizing it is not what happens to one that determines his future but what it does to him.” “Have some personal pride ,a faith in yourself and in God.” “Soft lives usually make soft men.” “Let us always remember that the service we give is the rent we pay for the privilege of living in this world of ours, and the higher the rent we pay the better the place we will have to live.” “Time is our great estate; it is distributed to the rich and poor equally . . . Remember yesterday cannot be recalled, tomorrow may he only a fanthom, but today is here for our profit and our plaudits. Time is our estate; today is our dividend.” “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.” — N. E. Tanner.

ROGERS BOYS —MR. J. BORGER MESSAGE FROM THE PHYSICAL EDUCATION DEPT. Joan Rogers Director of Women’s Athletics. Physical education has a definite place in the educational world. Any educational institute that ignores this is not meeting the challenge of developing the whole child. Some laymen still link physical education with the cult of the big muscle, and the theatricals of the trick muscle performers. It is no more a companion of this than is the medical profession a companion of quackery. Physical education is a phase of education which is concerned first with leading the child in big muscle activities, to adjust to these activities socially, and secondly to control health and growth conditions associated with these activities. To enjoy life is an essential in the individual which should come through education. Physical education contributes directly to this essential, and produces tangible results in success or failure. Physical education offers opportunities for group enterprise, and gives satisfaction to group achievements. Health, citizenship, and worthy use of leisure time are tnree main objectives of education. Physical education is one of the most fertile fields for the growth of these cardinal principles. Its own aims and objectives are in harmony with them. As Hetherington says: “Big muscle activities have inherent in them the exercise of the deepest and most powerful character forming emotional tendencies in human nature and they furnish the richest source of fundamental moral situations in the social relationships of children and youth.” Joan Rogers. WOMEN’S SPORTS ACTIVITIES The girls participated in many activities this year including: bowling, volley¬ ball, basketball, curling, fastball, and badminton. The Interhouse Awards were: Volleyball, Kerby House; Fastball, Garden House; Badminton ,Stanley House. Standing : Eleanor Waldon, Helen Ratcliffe, Joan Rogers, Coach; Marilyn Collins, Pat Lamoureaux, Rheta Rudolph. Kneeling: Joyce Jensen, Donna Morgan, Audrey Wark, Bev Rudolph, Carol F ulton. VOLLEYBALL The Interschool Volleyball team, captained by Audrey Wark was an outstanding team of skill and good sportsmanship. They won the C.I.A.A. championship and also the Inter-city crown. They nearly added the provincial laurels to their crown but missed out by two points. We were all very proud of their spirit and the other teams always enjoyed playing against Mount Royal College. •MV BADMINTON Mount Royal defeated Nurses’, Varsity, and Tech in women’s singles, and women’s doubles badminton tournament. The outstanding girl for Mount Royal was Phyllis Wurst who won the singles and was also a member of the winning doubles team. Gail McLaughlin, Phyllis Wurst .Brenda Littler, Donna Morgan, Bev Ru¬ dolph. CHEERLEADERS: The staff and Students Councils chose the cheerleaders at the first of the year on ability, personality, originality in cheers ,and general appearance. I think they did an excellent job, thanks to their able leader, Eleanor Walden ,and to everyones’ effort. — Joan Rogers. Anne Jackson, Bev Ru¬ dolph, Marilyn Collins, Pat Jackson, Donna Wol- stenholme, Pat Lamour- eaux, Pat Campbell, Gayle Fulton. BASKETBALL ; Basketball did not have such a successful year as the other sports. The Dolphins ended up in fourth place in league standing, but they were always a most energetic, and enthusiastic group of people. They played a vital and commendable role in the school sports programme. May they accept my best wishes for next year and the years to come. — Joan Rogers. Standing : Betty Ann Mc- Lelland, Donna Morgan, Phyllis Wurst, Brenda Littler, Joan Rogers, Coach. Kneeling : Gail Mc¬ Laughlin, Gayle Fulton, Laverne Schmeid, Gerry Bryden. JUNIOR MEN’S BASKETBALL: THE MOHAWKS. The Mohawks completed over the past winter a very fine year. A season won-lost record of 17 wins — 5 losses and one tie, should indicate this. In league play, the team won twelve and lost one to garner a first place finish. Next came the semi-finals: In a two game total-point series, they defeated Central United, taking both games. In the finals they won the first game against the Boystown team by a five point margin, but lost the second game by three points. However the Mohawks won the championship by a mere two points. Besides league play, the Mohawks played six exhibition games. Two losing encounters with the Western Canada High team; a tie with Crescent Heights Jrs.; two wins against Banff: and in a road trip to Hanna lost to their fine High School B team. The good season results are due to our coach Art Finnlayson, and Manager John Borger; the two making the capturing of the championship possible. PLAYERS: Gordon Hansen, Captain Dennis Christenson Jim Keane Sut Oshis Dave Castell Larry Bennion Peter Aunger Richard Bowhay Dave Doze Kent Border Bob Moody Bob Herron Jim Border Don Scott — Gordon Hansen. SENIOR BASKETBALL " THE BLUES” Our Mount Royal College basketball team had a good year. Although we did not win the league tournament against Tech, we did win two other important events. At the beginning of the year we held a Round Robin Tournament in the Doctor G. D. Stanley Gymnasium, and came out first, defeating both the Varsity and Tech teams. At the close of the season we entered the Tecumseh Tournament, meeting th Penguins and the Tech teams, and once again were victorious. During league play we were beaten by Varsity only once, and beaten by Tech once; a commendable record. The Blues defeated all comers during the Exhibition Games, making a very rewarding and enjoyable basketball year . Our season was enlivened by trips to Lethbridge twice, and to Cranbrook, and Medicine Hat once each. All were good games ,and the trips were thoroughly enjoyed by all participants. Through the year our spectator turnouts were not encouraging at all. Most of the games were played with only seven players present, but due to able coaching of Harvey Raymond, we were able to win the majority of the games. Next year with the increased support of the student body, we will certainly do better than this year, but victory needs the support of all not just a few. Coach — Harvey Raymond. PLAYERS: Dave Theodore, Captain F. Hugh McNeill G. Jerry Dalton G. Ron Sprecker G. Gary Baker G. Ron Komics F. Pete Rasmussen F. Jerry Webster C,F. George Slater C,F.

Our Brier team reached the finals in the city playdowns but lost out in the final game. The team was composed of. Skip — Lloyd Kaanewischer Third — Don Stirling Second — Glenn Grice Lead — Dave Damen House curling was not too active although there were nine teams competing. At the Athletic Banquet, Dave Damen accepted the house trophy on behalf of Stanley House. The Bonspiel was run off at the Victoria Arena, at the Calgary Curling Club. There were thirty-nine rinks entered. The results were as follows: First Event: First—Bill Renyk Second —Vic Luciak Third — Lewis Spilde Fourth-—Bill McNaughton.

In two years Mount Royal College will celebrate its 50th anniversary. To mark this occasion preparations are now under way to honor graduates and former members of the faculty. The organization of an Alumni received a wonderful ovation amidst an air of excitement and eager anticipation at the Alumni Dance held in the College Gym on June 6. For many it was the first Alumni Dance, for others it was a night when each returned, at least in spirit, to the days when Mount Royal College was their School. Patronesses were Mrs. Garden, Mrs. Collett and Mrs. Brown. Highlight of the evening was the presentation of a flight bag to Dr. John H. Garden, principal, the first graduate of the College. This indeed was a milestone that will never be forgotten. Those who loved their Alma Mater returned to renew acquaintances and pay homage to her. On behalf of the University and High School Students’ Unions I thank all Mount Royal College Alumni for their thoughtfulness and co-operative assistance in making this reunion a success. It is most gratifying to learn the whereabouts of former students and of their achievements. To each of you, we extend best wishse for continued success and happiness. — Bill Fair A VENTURE INTO JOURNALISM This spring our bold engineers ventured into the field of journalism. This spring birth of “E.M.T.A.E.” was the result of the hard efforts of such dashing heroes as “Rod” Conklin, Lawrie Gray, the Harington Bros, and their other knights at arms. I was one of the few privileged readers, and I must say that their writers certainly had a flair for picturesque writing. I think I have never before evisioned such dashing heroes, and demure virginal maidens (hear! HERE?). But E.M.T.A.E. was destined for an untimely death, which resulted in many tears, broken hearts, and hurt young people. To understand one reason why this humourously raw edition didn’t reach the public, take a look at the ac¬ companying cartoon. How aptly this portrays a Mount Royal Engineer; judge from this as to how one would write. The Bus. admin, students wish to honour Dr. Garden as the champion of truth and beauty at Mount Royal College. RN NOW I ARC ONE " " The Editor.

This seems a very short period when compared with the ages of some of our eastern colleges ,but Mount Royal College is an old college in relation to the age of Western Canada; for it was only some seventy-eight years since the first settlers began coming to southern Alberta. This college was established along with St. Hilda’s Anglican Girls School, Western Canada Boys School, Bishop Pink- ham College, and St. Marys’ Convent to educate the children of Alberta pioneers. Mount Royal and St. Mary’s are the only institutions remaining. It is well to note that Mount Royal offers an especial service to Western Canada in that it has become a completely inter-denominational and in¬ ter-racial educational centre: serving families as far east as Manitoba; west to the Pacific Ocean; north to within the Artie Circle; and south to the U.S. Our College has and is now serving people from the Carribean nations, the Orient, the United States, and South America. The Mount Royal College Conservatory of Music has been a cultural centre of Western Canada for many years, and now is ranking second only to the Royal Conservatory of Toronto. Many of the graduates and former pupils of the Conserva¬ tory are internationally recognized artists. Students of this College need be proud of the Mount Royal College heritage, and would do well to enhance the prestige. We have become a part of Mount Royal and Mount Royal has become a lasting part of us . Frederic Walker EDITOR. An old man, travelling a lone highway. Came at the evening, cold and gray. To a chasm deep and wide. The old man crossed in the twilight dim. For the sullen stream held no fears for him. But he turned when he reached the other side. And builded a bridge to span the tide. " Old man " , cried a fellow pilgrim near, " You are wasting your strength with building here; Your journey will end with the ending day, And you never again will pass this way. You have crossed the chasm deep and wide. Why build you a bridge at eventide? " And the builder raised his old gray head: " Good friend, on the path I have come”, he said, " There followeth after me today A youth whose feet will pass this way " . “This stream, which has been as naught to me. To that fair-haired boy may a pitfall be; He. too, must cross in the twilight dim — Good friend. I am building this bridge for him. " Dromgoole.
